  • Students Skype with Olympic Commentator Lewis Johnson

    Students from Glenhope skype with Lewis Johnson

     

    On Wednesday, students at Glenhope Elementary skyped with NBC Olympic commentator Lewis Johnson at the base of the bobsled track for the 2018 Olympics. With a 15-hour time difference, the students said 'good morning' as Johnson was getting ready to say 'good night' from PyeongChang, South Korea. The Skype session with Johnson took place due to a connection with Glenhope Elementary Learning Liaison Jeanette Fink. 

     

    "We are always looking for ways to make global connections as it aligns with our district goals of developing Global Citizens," said Fink. "We also had another connection to the Olympics as a former Grapevine High School student is interning with NBC in PyeongChang!"  

     

    Second-grade teachers designed lessons that connected growth mindset using Olympic athletes as exemplars. Students focused on setting goals, team work, sportsmanship and perseverance as part of the lesson. 

     

    Some of the questions students asked included:

    • How long have you been reporting fo the Olympics?
    • How many athletes do you talk to in a day?
    • Who is the most famous Olympian you have ever met?
    • How are they making the Luge, Bobsled and Skeleton racing as safe as possible? 
    • What is your favorite food in South Korea?

  • Building Strong Relationships

    Posted by Communication Services on 2/16/2018
    The B.E.S.T. Report
    Building Excellent Schools Together
    Expect ~ Relate ~ Innovate
     
    Like you, I watched in horror this week as we witnessed the reports of another tragic school shooting. This one, at Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, took the lives of students and staff. 
     
    Everyone associated with schools: students, parents, staff members and community members feel the pain and trauma each time this happens in our country. We search for answers to questions like: “How could this happen again?” and “How can we keep it from happening in the future?”
     
    We conduct drills and we implement security measures. We make every effort to physically keep our students safe. Most importantly, we build strong healthy relationships with students. Beginning with ‘“circle up” time in elementary schools, our students begin to build those relationships with their teachers and with each other. We also encourage everyone to report if they have a suspicion that something might be wrong. We work closely with our local police departments and school resource officers to investigate concerns quickly and thoroughly. We communicate with staff, parents and the community when matters arise that need a wider response.
     
    We will continue to practice and refine our safety and security measures. In addition, I encourage all of us to reach out to our students daily, to continue to build strong positive relationships with each one, and to speak up if something seems out of the ordinary. Preparation and a personalized environment will help GCISD remain a safe place to learn as we continue to Build Excellent Schools Together.
     
    BEST,
